Holy snow, batman

So, this is sort of an insane amount of snow, kids even for this girl from NH. Like, really insane. I decided last night this called for a cowl/neck warmer because a scarf bunches up too much sometimes under my coat and I've been looking for an excuse to knit up this yarn. The Tall Guy waited patiently for me to finish it this morning and off we went in the snow!

The hat, if you're curious was knit for me by a friend, isn't it cute? I love it! It was made from the same yarn/colorway as my gathered pullover and fits me just right! Thanks NeedleBeedle!

As for the cowl, it was pretty simple... I pulled out my discontinued, Bluemoon Fiber Arts skein of Leticia, a superbulky single ply in Sapphire. I used size 11 needles, cast on 51 or 53 stitches in the round, did a bit of garter ridge, then stockinette til I started running low on yarn, then switched to a garter ridge for the end. I knit til I ran out of yarn which was about 80yds. Easy and warm!

(This is looking up the street towards the metro tracks at about 1pm today)
We tried to take a family picture, but the snow was too much for Annie to handle. She's worse then a toddler with too much sugar in this sort of weather!
Hope you're all safe and staying warm, I'm off to make some chicken noodle soup!

  1. I'm so glad you like the hat! It looks so pretty on you - it makes your eyes pop! And it matches your cowl! Enjoy the snow!
